Mouth-watering Middlesbrough menu for festive fixture in hospitality!

Peruse the menus and sample the finest food in the luxury of our hospitality suites next weekend...

14 December 2018

The festive period is so often about food. But why would you choose to slave over a pan of brussels sprouts when you could have some mouth-watering dishes delivered to your table next weekend...when we face Middlesbrough at the Madejski.

Reading take on Tony Pulis' men just three sleeps before the big day (Saturday 22nd December, 3pm), and as ever, we'll have plenty of activities going on around Hospitality to get you in the festive spirit!

Prices start from just £45 inc. VAT, and you and your children can take part in all the festivities we have to offer on the day - regardless of which Hospitality package you buy for the game.

Alongside our usual Hospitality offerings, Father Christmas will be here in his grotto, so your children can visit him and receive an early Christmas gift!
